How Much Do the Best Mesothelioma Lawyers Cost?
Getting a mesothelioma diagnosis is hard enough. It can drain families of resources — both emotional and financial.
We work on a contingency basis, which means there are never any out-of-pocket expenses. There’s no cost to call us and that we only get paid if you receive a settlement or monetary reward.
What Costs Can Mesothelioma Compensation Cover?
Maximizing the amount of mesothelioma compensation a victim and their family receives is always the goal of Sokolove Law.
The amount of money determined in a settlement or trial verdict is mostly driven by the perceived value of pain and suffering that the injured person endured. This value translates to some dollar amount and can be used to cover any kind of cost you would like.
Although compensation can be used for anything you want it to, some mesothelioma victims use it to cover expenses such as:
- Medical surgeries
- Medical procedures like chemotherapy and radiation
- Travel costs associated with medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Caregiver/facility fees
- Physical therapy
- Psychological counseling
- Household expenses
- Funeral costs
- Financial security for your family
Mesothelioma Lawyer FAQ
How much money does a typical mesothelioma claim recover in compensation?
The average mesothelioma settlement, in which defendants offer to compensate the victim before the case goes to trial, is approximately $1 Million.
The average mesothelioma verdict, in which a jury decides the outcome of the case through a trial, is $2.4 Million.
It is difficult to determine the value of a case ahead of time without knowing specific details, and these ranges can only serve as ball-park figures. Many cases are worth more or less, depending on a host of factors.
My family member died from mesothelioma. Can I file a mesothelioma claim?
After a mesothelioma patient has died, a family member or the person who is named the estate representative of the deceased may file a wrongful death lawsuit. If no one has been appointed as the estate representative, we can work with you to have someone appointed.
Because mesothelioma is an especially deadly cancer that has no cure, wrongful death mesothelioma lawsuits are common.
I worked for the military. I don’t want to sue them. Can I avoid that?
Veterans who served in the U.S. military and were diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result do not file lawsuits against the military. Instead, they file directly against the manufacturers that supplied the military with deadly asbestos-containing products — not the U.S. government.
Filing an asbestos legal claim does not impact VA benefits or pensions, and often these rights can be enforced without ever having to go to court.
How long should I wait until I contact a mesothelioma lawyer?
The unfortunate reality is that due to statutes of limitations, families have only a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit.
Statute of limitations vary by state — and some are as short as one year from your date of diagnosis. Once the statute of limitations has expired, victims and their loved ones will never be able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
Determining the statute of limitations for your unique case is complex and relies on many factors. For this reason, it is crucial to contact an experienced mesothelioma law firm like Sokolove Law to determine exactly how long you may have to file your claim.
Why should I hire a mesothelioma lawyer?
Mesothelioma law is extremely complex, and state laws differ across the United States.
When you work with Sokolove Law, you will be represented by lawyers who practice extensively in asbestos-related disease cases and who have the experience, knowledge, and skills to give you the best possible chance of securing compensation.
